Climbing the worlds tallest tree

The best way to measure a tree is to climb it and drop a tape measure down.
The following quote is from USA Tourist News Magazine.
Since the year 2000, the Stratosphere Giant, located in the Humboldt Redwoods State Park, held the “tallest tree” title. That was, until 2006 when the redwood tree, named Hyperion, was confirmed to be the world’s tallest living tree. Hyperion is located on a hillside in Northern California and has a height of 379.1 feet (115.55 meters).
I haven’t actually seen Hyperion myself, but the redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains are plenty enough to give me a stiff neck.

  1. Until next spring, I have not photographed the world’s tallest tree, but expect to. I found the 5 largest in 3 separate parks on my first and second searches for them.
